Google introduced the latest Android 7.0 Nougat officially to the Android community last week with new build number NRD90M. As expected, the Nexus series is the first in line to receive this upgrade. Ever since its launch, the AOSP firmware has been receiving a lot of attention. Contributors and Android enthusiasts have started compiling the new Nougat AOSP source for their devices. Earlier, we brought the unofficial Android 7.0 AOSP ROMS for Google Nexus 5, 7, 4, and much more. However now, several other AOSP ROMS have been showing up for devices from other manufacturers like the OnePlus One, Sony Xperia M series, Jiayu S3 Plus, Raspberry Pi 3, and much more. Here we have listed several devices from third-party manufacturers with the Nougat custom ROM port either official or unofficial. At this moment, you may only find unofficial/custom ROMS for your Android devices unless, of course, you are using Nexus 6P, 5X, 6, 9, 7, Player, Pixel C, etc.
Even though CyanogenMod Inc. should be expected to release a new CyanogenMod 14 soon enough, it may not be available for all the Android devices at once. It may take some time for the device maintainers to actually compile and release a stable CM 14 Nightly build. So you may need to wait around a month or so for the custom ROM to be available for a majority of Android devices. Moreover, we will be posting the official CM 14 release here once the builds are available. So stay tuned. Meanwhile, you may want to check out the unofficial AOSP Nougat ROMS for some of the available Android devices from various manufacturers. These are custom ROMS so make sure you have TWRP recovery installed on your device. and then proceed. We will keep updating the post.
